Unfortunately there were no tripadvisor comments before booking this bungalow, so I learned the hard way. I can't commit to the friendliness of the staff, since we haven't seen them at all, the keys have been left in the property. However I can agree to some of the issues raised in the previous comments. The smell is absolutely terrible, it's awful all the way inside and out. No hot water in the shower thoughout the whole stay and it's constantly blocked. The smell of chlorine coming out of hot tub is horrendous, we didn't  even use it, since we were scared to catch rash, so it's absolutely misleading to highlight as one of your amenities and charge more money for it. Glad that we did not have children with us, since there is no playground area at all, very minimal green space around villa, everywhere is a private land apparently with no signs, which belongs to other people, so you can't access it. The only kind of positive thing about this place is a 'game room' which is actually a dark garage with couple of games and that's all.

Terrible Easter weekend

It was the most terrible experience I have ever had during my short brake. The location is nice, ecept the smell of cow poo all day and night. There is no chance you can leave the windows open even for a second. The staff was very rude not even to the adults but to the kids as well. We had one gay couple with us and they have been abused by villa staff. No WiFi, fase information on the Web site. Overall unsafe place to be, especially with the family.

Disater Easter weekend

After first night we had a conflict with a owner due to he was trying to find anything wrong we do to prove that we were breaking terms and conditions of rent contract. As there was no space for kids to play, they played about 8 feet further from us. Unfortunately we didnt realise that it was a private land already. So the neighbor (the owner of that land) came to us to complain that we are not allowed to be there. We apologised immediately and asked kids to come back. The next day we've been asked to leave premises which been rented for 3 nights, due to broken agreement. The kids got upset and streesed out that it was their fault. So we tried to talk with the owner and aske to stay at least one more night. The owner was too negative to listen our side of story. Then police has been involded. The officer told them that they cant kick us out. So the owner took his tractor and blocked our cars with horse poo. So we were trapped and we couldnt leave... Overall it is unsafe place to stay, especially with the kids.
